Traditionally, civil engineers base design guidelines on elastic section modulus. If you see a section modulus number cited without reference to whether it is plastic or elastic, then the general rule is that this is elastic section modulus. In the rare instances when plastic section modulus is used, the word “plastic” almost always explicitly precedes section modulus. Plastic section modulus is usually used to calculate according to the plastic method and to determine the plastic capacity of cross-sections. The elastic and plastic resistance values are different, and the calculation results may be different.
Enter your wall dimensions and the values below will adjust automatically.
|retaining wall type||construction days||total cost||cost per linear ft||cost per square ft|
|Steel Sheet Pile Wall||47.69|
|Soldier Pile and Lagging Wall||90.45|
|Concrete Modular Unit Gravity Wall||76.18|
|Mechanically Stabilized Earth Wall||95.58|
|Cast-In-Place Reinforced Concrete Wall||136.09|
Approximate cost and construction time for different wall types is based on 2009 RSMeans pricing for the US and extrapolated from the 2009 NASSPA Retaining Wall Comparison Technical Report,
